Pros: The software works as expected to create PDF output for our legacy operational reporting system. We have had NO issues with stability and portability of the plug-in.

Cons: We have had to manage security for the plug in a somewhat unorthodox way on our legacy platform, but that has been more about our service that the app itself.

Overall: This has allowed us to quickly make the PDF export of reports available to our users and have appreciated the licensing and critical update support.

Pros: This really helps us with workflows in which we can sort, manipulate incoming streams as needed. Also, calling this from within existing programs - it has expanded our post process / pre process abilities. We love it.

Cons: I wish this software had a way to reduce the size of documents we process through it.

Overall: Excellent!

Pros: We were able to quickly make it compatible with other packages we needed to build the solution

Cons: We were able to navigate through any issues we had so no real complaints. The sales staff, however, was intrusive with regard to how we were implementing, and also unclear on the pricing structure between test and production environments

Pros: relatively easy to configure. You'll need a separate license for every server instance.

Cons: this software is a niche play necessary only for supporting legacy software running on older systems that lack built-in pdf printing functionality

Overall: The software does the job, if you truly need it. However, you should really engineer around the problem, if you can. The price is too high, and the never-ending spam from ActivePDF's salespeople really gets old

Pros: Easy to use. Conforms nicely to object standards.

Cons: Price. It works great. My only issue is that it does a thousand things of which we only need three but we have to pay for the thousand.

Overall: We use Toolkit in a realtime web application to fill pre-defined pdf forms with database data, then flatten the form fields. This is very simple in Toolkit. It can do so much more that we will never use, but have to pay for. I wish they had a lite form filler version at a nicer price.
